WV Home-Growns Who Saw Action Against ECU

I like knowing how many WV Home-Growns get on the field in WVU games. Below is the list of 13 WVU native players who saw action against ECU:

  • #39  Safety  Dante Bonamico
  • #19   WR  Druw Bowen
  • #34   Safety  Shane Commodore
  • #46   DL  Reese Donahue
  • #15    Punter/holder Billy Kinney
  • #92   DL   Jon Lewis
  • #52   LS   Nick Meadows
  • #48   FG kicker  Mike Molina
  • #1     Safety  Derrek Pitts Jr.
  • #30   Kick-Offs  Evan Staley
  • #56    DL    Darius Stills
  • #10    Safety   Dylan Tonkery
  • #28   FB/TE   Elijah Wellman

We all know about Eli Wellman lead blocking for the RBs, but against ECU Wellman was targeted once and caught a pass from QB Will Grier for 19-yards.

Since spring practice we have heard a lot of praise from both coaches and players about the effort and play of safety Dylan Tonkery. Against ECU, Tonkery had 4 tackles: 3 tackles were solo, 1-tackle for loss (TFL), and 1 QB hurry.

DL Jon Lewis had 3 tackles all were Solo; DL Reese Donahue had 2 tackles and 1 hurry; and safety Shane Commodore had 1 tackle and it was solo.

FG kicker Mike Molina missed his 2 attempts, kick-off specialist Evan Staley had 2 kicks that went out-of-bounds, and 0 that made it into the end-zone.

Freshman WR Druw Bowen caught his 1st pass in a WVU game from QB Chris Chugunov, and freshman Safety Derrek Pitts Jr had 1 tackle.

Punter/holder Billy Kinney had 4 punts for 160-yards. His longest was 53-yards.

I hope I didn’t miss anyone who should have been on this list. Please let us know if I did, and who we missed.

I figure we’ll see this many or more home-growns this week against Delaware State.

GO EERs!!!
